X-men v1 #56, 1969 - Cyclops discovers a long lost brother, just as his foe transforms into the Living Monolith. Neal Adams takes over Marvel's worst selling title at time, breathing new life into the series. His cover emphasizes scale while incorporating the masthead into the scene. His opening splash is breathtaking, showing the X-men's arrival at ancient Egyptian ruins. Unconventional layouts and skewed panels propel the story at a dynamic pace. Above all, Adams' phenomenal drawing skills come to the fore on nearly every page. Other artists in this issue include Werner Roth and Sam Grainger. This is number 1 of 9 X-men issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or X-men issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
